Cooper writes from   Anyox  as   follows: "I am doing all the residence  plumbing  here,   and   have just finished tbe plumbing and   heating  in  the   superintendent's   new     home  This   is"   an   up   to  date place, and  cost   $35,000.    Anyox   is   a   nice,  clean  town.    The  houses  all have  first-olaBS bathronn'S and  plumbing  fixtures.    There is no such'a   thing  as  a   cesspool   to   kick   up a stink  Tbe town iB luid out in   a neat w.ay,  with sewers and  water   mains,   and  fire hydrants at every  corner.    We  have had several fires here,   but always   managed   to   save the build  iiigs.    Tbe   weather  is  very mild,  with rain and sunshine.    The  coldest it got this winter was about   18  degrees below freezing.   Tbe snow is  only about  30 inches  deep, and is  going   off   fast.    All   the    heating  plants are   supplied from one boiler  in   tbe  general  office   block.    This  boiler   feeds  seven   different build  ings,   and   each is  as  large as the  Winnipeg hotel.    My   sister-in-law,  Miss Crandell, had her knee broken  while coasting.   She has been in the  hospital for two weeks and will   be  there for about four more,   Her leg  will   always   be   stiff  in   the knee  joint."   The Fee brothers are making arrangements to ship 100 tons of ore  from the Maple *Leaf mine, in  Gloucester camp, to the Granby  smelter.  Twenty-five .iiien.

The order to entrain is expected to arrive in this city- hourly,  and it is reasonably certain that the  boys will start'for tbe coast inside of  two or three days.

The members composing thetbiid  contingent are a fine body of men,  and a large number of them have  seen 'active service. In stature,  training and physical condition they  are fully tbe equal of tbe members  of tbe first and* second contingents,  and it is a safe prediction that they  will distinguish themselves when  tbey reach the front. .  of national repute, and tbe entertainment end of the meeting, which  will'cu'lminatVin a typical' mining  men's smoker and calebration, is  being well looked after.

He was natur  ally a little doubtful however, of  the technical ability ol the man.  After the first performance the  player asked the conductor how he  had done.  The conductor replied that he had  done fairly, but that perhaps he  would do better the next time.  The newcomer, eying him grate-  fnlly, answered:  '���������Man, ye see, the music is a'  strange tae me the nioht, and I'm  no jist shair o't yet, but you wait  tae the morn's nicht, and ye'11 no  hear ane of thae fiddles at a'!"

A regular meeting of the board of  trade will be held in the board  rooms on Tuesday, tbe 23rd inst.,  at 8 o'clock p.m.  The calendar houses do not leave  any more money in the country  towns than the eastern departmental stores. Yet many country  merchants spend more for calendar  advertising every year than they do  for advertising in their home paper.  And then they expect the country  paper to educate the people to trade  at home! Calendar advertising is  money thrown away, because the  calendars are mutilated or destroyed  after they have adorued the walls of  office or shop for a few. weeks. In  newspaper advertising the merchant  can keep the people informed from  week to week regarding the bargains  Ignorant Teacher!  "What did you learn at school  today, dearie?" asked the mother of  little Mabel when tbe child returned from her  firstday at school.  "I didn't learn anything," was  Mabel's disgusted reply.

THE KM US  Perpetrating  Crimes Against  Humanity and Yet Professing Religion  Many people find it difficult to understand how the Kaiser can' be in  _ any sense a Christian and yet respon-  ' sible for .the vandalism of liis armit^  and tlie problem ies not an easy oiie.^  In his private life he is a sincere and  devout parent, accustomed to read  sermons, especially English sermons,  aloud to his .family. Pie has a special  admiartion for Dr. Boyd Carpenter. He  has been known' to discuss theology  witli animation and interest in the  post-prandial atmosphere which in  England is usually sacred to politics.  His criticism of a theologian of European reputation was given with  great assurance. '-Yes, a great man,  but he is not sound on the person of  our Lord."  To understand the anomalies of liis  present position we must put   him in  tbe setting of Prussian history.   The  house of Brandenburg owes a great  deal to  the Teutonic-   Knights, who,  when the Crusades died down, undertook to Christianize-tho pagan tribes  settled in, what is now Eastern Prus-  .   sia.    Their organization was military  "and their methods were- those of the  Knights  Templars.    They  offered  to  their adversaries   the alternative  of  conversion or death.   At the time of  the Reformation the head of this religious military order was a member  of the house    of    Brandenburg.    He  adopted Lutheranism and carried over  " the  whole  order 'with their possessions  to  the Electorate of  Brandenburg.   This was the origin of the conception   ; of^the  "good old  Prussian-  God."    There was an element of religious feeling in the Electoral house,  and an element of .militarism in their  religion which gave" an exalted value  to ..the function of discipline and consecrated war as a means to ideal ends.  It seems  to  us  a  very  olng way  from anything that we know as Christianity,     and it is  certainly not the  Christianity of the  New Testament.  But It is a natural historic background  for .the extraordinary porten now presented to the world's gaze of a person  perpetrating crimes against humanity  and religion and    yet professing the  deepest religious motives. The rest is  easy to understand.   No human being  can     be  constantly toadied  to," and  made Into a little god, without coming  to feel that this sort of adoration is.  "his  right.    To  grow exacting, inconsiderate, and tyrannical when thwarted is almost inevitable.   The little god  may presently   become   an inhuman  monster.    To say as much as this in  Germany would entitle a writer to the  horror of being imprisoned for life or  phot.    But Germans know that it is"  true, and perhaps they may not really  resent     its  being  published   on  the  housetops.���������Manchester Guardian.  /  RLD1DE-   -  CONTEST FOeSEEil  Former Cartoonist as Troopshboter  . From cartoonist to travelling salesman with an expert trapshooting attachment-hasn't been such a difficult  stride for E. F. Slear of Collingswood, | female suffrage together are a strong  Prohibition Issue is Raised by Military  Measures Adopted by Four  Nations-  The political battles between tho  "drys" anil and the "wets," like the  age long'strife between the storks and  the frogs, is never entirely settled.  Sometimes the "drys," as the advocates of compulsory prohibition are  called, win a partial victory over their  sworn foes, the "wets," who are opposed , to all sumptuary "legislation.  Again the pendulum swings the other  way. Just now the "drys," encouraged by recent successes, are arranging  to make prohibition.the one great paramount and" determining issue of the  next presidential, campaign says' the  New York ^Herald.  ..',  They are encouraged in this by important happenings abroad as well as  at home. Abroad they point to the  action of Russia, which, by ukase of  the Tsar,,, has suppressed the use of{  vodka and other alcoholic'drinks, with  results said to be astounding. Not only  has mobilization of the Russian sold-  tery been more complete than ever expected, but the economic conditions in  Russia have ' improved immensely, it  to said.  France has- suppressed the absinthe  traffic and is now determining whether it would not be a wise thing to do.  the same with other alcoholic drinks.'  Last spring the German Kaiser gave  forth an expression of advice-that the  German,people should give up.the use  of beer, and that :he would head the  .^movement by giving it up himself.  England has been considering a proposal to abandon til I alcoholic drinks  except that of malt liquors, and the  advice of Lord Kitchensr to the English-soldiers on their way to France to  eschew hard liquors is recalled.  The action of these rour ,great nations brought about by reason of war,  may bring into politics a great world's  movement to prohibit the manufacture, importation, sale and offering of  alcoholic beverages' among the people  of all nations the "drys" aver.  So much for conditions abroad.; At  home the "drys" find them equally encouraging. Undoubtedly the extension  of "votes for women" territory has  added considerably to the number of  recruits to the "dry" cause. Last  month Colorado, the pioneer woman  suffrage state, adopted by the majority  of 11,572 a statewide prohibition  amendment to its constitution. In Illinois, Oklahoma (which adopted prohibition in 1907), Kansas, South Dakota,  Oregon and Montana' prohibition and  ���������Irrigated Farms  Much Land.is Being Taken up In the  Irrigation Telt  One of the big features of Canadian  Pacific work in   the west is that in  the case of. the irrigation farms the  company is now being repaid** for ,its  original outlay.'In many other directions, great sums have been expended  .churns which   could     not tbe tagged  with the remark, "profits by and by.'.'

Describing the search of  the British squadron under   Admiral  Cradock up and  down the  coast for  die enemy s warships, the. writer says  that  although  tney  could not locate  them   "we heard  friendly   wireless  code."  coming 10 the battle itself, the  writer says everybody was' remarkably cool, as if at practice. , "I cannot understand the miracle of our deliverance. None will ever. We were  .struck at the wateiline by in all five  shells out of about six hundred directed at us,-but, strangely enough, not at  vulnerable places, our coal saving us  on three occasions, as we are not armored, and :shouId not be in the battle line against an armored cruiser."

Less than two years ago, Mr. Slear  was delighting thousands of readers  of Sporting Life with his drawings of  men and events in the sporting world.  He was attending shoots now and  then and occasionally taking his place  on the firing line, but his scores were  not exceptional���������85 per cent, of broken targets was high in those days, try  as he might.  When Mr. Slear took serioiisly to  the sample case, his shooting received  added attention. Laying aside the  pen and the crayon temporarily, he  started in with Dutch persistence to  develop his trigger' finger both to  "pull" at the psychological moment  and to pencil orders between shoots.  That lie has succeeded in both directions is proved by the fact that he  shot his Remington through 1914 with  an average of practically 94 per cen.7,  and that he isvabout to enter upon his  third selling year with the same concern for whose service he left his  art.  Many who have followed Mr. Slear's  career from-the farm in the Keystone  state, where, as he expresses it, he  "grew up in a 'Pennsylvania Dutch' atmosphere"���������an atmosphere that may  have contributed many of his' positive  qualities���������through his employment as  a call boy for the Pennsylvania Railroad; his art studies, and his work  oh Sporting Life, will be interested in  watching the complete transformation  from artist to business man and" trap-  shooter.  Roughing Cattle is Poop Policy  In wintering young cattle many  farmers make a mistake by attempting  to carry them through without any  grain at all. This is termed roughing  them through the winter, and is considered by some as an economical  method of feeding, when the facts are  they lose more in growth than all  their extra feed would come to. Besides it generally requires about half  of the summer���������and the best half at  that���������to get these cattle back to the  condition and weight they should  have attained before going out on  gnrss at all.  combination which the "wets" have to  oppose. In Pennsylvania two of. the  three candiates for United States senator came out for prohibition this  year, and the defeat of Governor Cox  for re-election in Ohio is ascribed by  many to the solid support of the  "drys" who are numerous in Ohio,*-  Sandusky and Hamilton, in favor of  his successful republican opponent.  More important, perhaps, in a political way than all this is the strong pro-  -hibition sentiment of the South which  has replaced New England as the  "dry" territory. Georgia, Tennessee,  Mississippi, North Carolina and West  Virginia are now prohibition states.  Kentucky, the home of the blue grass  colonels and the "land of the Bourbon," has b.een slanting in the same  direction, and in Texas, where whisky  has always been a popular beverage,  statewide prohibition fell short only  7,000 of being adopted .in 1911, and  Texas, is a state which casts 300,000  votes���������mostly democratic.  Heretofore the battle of the "drys"  has been a series of separate, fights  in individaul states against the "wets"  who have been able to send forward  heavy reinforcements at each point  attacked. Henceworth the "drys" are  to wage a notionwide battle, "win or'i  lose," for an amedment to the federal]  constitution which, if adopted, will  make the whole United States "dry."  Their ambitious scheme is, mechanically at least, less impracticable and  chimerical than might appear at first  glance.  New     Fisheries'     Regulations    to  Framecf* By Conference  ,. New regulations are to be drawn up  by the fisheries conference at Ottawa.  to govern fishing in the~ boundary  waters of the Gulf of Georgia and the  Fraser river, whence ..the salmon proceed to the spawning grounds. These  regulations are necessary, on account  of the fact that the fisheries treaty  between the United States and Canada  has failed to become operative according to the Canadian view. The present conditions are not such "-as. to''tend  toward the conservation of the' valuable fisheries.of the British Columbia  coast.  Canadian fishermen are under more  severe restrictions than Americans.  The fact that the production of the  British Columbia fisheries for the last  fiscal year totalled in value $13,-  981,839, out of a total production for  Canada of $33,207,348, emphasizes the  importance of strict conservation.  Russian army engaged on her northern  frontier, is the opinion' of Sir Louis  Mallett, recently British Ambassador  at Constaintinople, expressed'in an interview. " ���������  "There can be no holy war, despite  the efforts of Germany to embroil India, Egypt and other"-Islamic" countries- by- spreading false reports that  such a war is being declared," said  Sir Louis, "because the. Turkish Mohammedan.-: would be obliged in such  an event to fight their present allies,  in common with the rest of Christendom.  v. ."It 'is true that the great, mass .of  Turks believe'that the Kaiser is a  Mohammedan. Also they believe that  they, will b.e able to seize Egypt,  which, the'Germans told them, is their  -Alsace-Lorraine, and a goodly slice of  Russia. From what I heard on the  subject in Constantinople, I do' not "believe the Germans readily share the  Turkish delusion that they can invade Egypt, but they naturally foster  plans for this invasion,-in the.hope of  compelling the British -to keep . a  large force in Egypt.    ".  "The    same is true of the attitude  {toward  Russia.   -They are  the most  J gullible  people  on   earth,     aud". the  Turks are quite ready to believe that  they"can  overrun    Russia,',   and,  of  course,   their  efforts   to  do  so mean  that two or three Russian army corps  'must be  subtracted -from  the troops  fighting, against, the Germans-in Austria.  "Although he has the army "and  navy behind him, Enver Bey is by no  means as popular as he appears to  be, and it would not surprise me to  hear of his assassination at any time.

"" A Diagnosis of Economy  We have been respectively told that  we must economize in these trying  days, and that it is very unsocial indeed to cut down our expenditure. On  the whole a reasonable economy holds  the day.' But people practice it in  curious ways. One woman, for instance, said she was being so economical, and when asked how, said with  pride, ".We've given up toast for  lunch."  On the whole; people are": economizing in clothes without really depriving  themselves of very much. Manufacturers grasped the situation with unusual quickness and insteal of dear-  ness induced by the war, clothes are  this season unusually cheap.

Work on these was commenced early in 1913, and required  about a year to complete. The  project included not' only theexten-,  sion of the shops but also tho mechanical yards, involving the reclamation  of a small section of- land along-  the shore of Lake Niplssing. The  motive power, prior to' the chango  consisted of a 23 stall locomotive  house, with small machine and blacksmith shop attached to the west end.  ���������This combined building was of a  heavy masonry construction, and has  been retained in the new layout. To  the west there has been added a  combined machine and erecting shop,  served by a transfer table, along the  west frontage of the shop... The erecting shop contains 12 trades, the depth  of the erecting shop being 70 feet.  The alterations have,"indeed, been  so extensive as to almost produce the  feeling of entire newness as to appearance and size. The ��������� normal  monthly production is eight locomotives. Repairs of all kinds are  made. Old engines aro made to look  like new; more men have been employed; and under ' the*direction of  Mr. A. I-I.

Bravery Performed In the  "Heat of Battle  Thrilling tales of the bravery of  the soldiers at the front are told in  the following, letters.  "Near our trench," says a -soldier  returned from the Aisno, "there were  a.lot of Avounded and their cries for  water were pitiful. In the trenches  was a quiet chap of the Engineers,  who could stand It ,no longer. He  collected all the water bottles he  could lay hold of, and said ho was  going out.

"After attending to . the first man  he crawled along the ground to others  until he was about a quarter of a milo  away from us. Then he stood up and  zigzagged toward another batch of  wounded, but that was the end of him.  The German fire got hotter and hotter.  He was hit badly, and with just a  slight upward fling of his arms he  dropped to earth like the hero he was.

Duration of the War  A distinguished French officer who  is in a position to estimate the portabilities, does not expect to see the  Germans driven back across the Rhine  until February, 1916, "or the conclusion of peace before 1917- This forecast^ should show the necessity of  more active recruiting in this country. There are thousands of men who  have not joined the army because they  honestly believe that the war will be  over before they can fire a shot,  ihose who are hesitating to enlist for  this reason may be reassured. The  nation must be prepared' to place  more than a million men in the field  and to maintain its armies at that  figure by making good the constant  wastage of the' battlefield.

" They wanted the homeless  and helpless little waif that they had  found in the backyard.  So,'' at last, they wera told they  might keep it. The maid of all work  gave the squirming and airty little  ball of fur a bath, and when it had  dried it was decidedly improved.

British empire reminds us that  the sovereignty, of that island is still  a matter of dispute. Leo' VI., last  King of tho Lusignan line���������who was  also King of Armenia���������was carried  captive to Jerusalem, and'afterwards  sent to Paris, where he/ died in 1393.  His descendants have frequently asserted their rights to the crown of  Armenia and Cyprus. The last well  authenticated claimant was Guy de  Lusignan, who died in a Paris cellar  in 1795, but a claim to direct descent  was put forward so recently as 1884  by Archbishop Khorian, who represented the Armenians at' the Con:  gress of Berlin and who set up a  modest claim that the Island of Cyprus should be made over to his family as heirs to the throne of Armenia.  One of the Archbishop's brothers  married an English lady ywhile an-  wedded Mile, de Nosrois, well known  in Paris as "Princess Marie de Lusignan of Cyprus, Jerusalem and Armenia."

Though Tsing Tau will, till the close  of thevwar, remain In possession of the  Japanese, it is certain that it will, in  due course, be restored to China. The  London correspondent.of the Liverpool  Daily Post understands that in that  event it is probably that -Wei-Hai-Wei"  will be given back to China by the  British government. Its secession was  intended as a sort of compensation for  the German acquisition of Kiao-chau,  but' its value Avas sentimental rather  than practical. Our real base in the  Chinese seas is,"of course, Hong Kong,  and very little has been, done to convert Wei-Hai-Wei into a'naval arsenal.

That's  what we all felt about it."  ^The story of the bravery of Corporal Lupin, of Liege, is told by a  Belgian officer.  "We were on the right bank of tho  Meuse, at Bellaire, in close touch  with the German battery. The musketry on both sides was terrible. All  at once, the Germans adopted new  tactics. They seemed to ������������������ withdraw  ���������from their position; ��������� and we could  distinctly notice their ranks splitting  as if in great confusion. It was only  to bring up more artillery which had  been rushing from behind. The move  was smartly executed, the ranks  closed again, "and for a time they  seemed as if they were going to have  tho advantage over us. j'  But now young .Lupin had seen  his chance looming, and what he did  altogether changed the face of  things. ft  Like a flash, the boy dashed off under cover of a ditch to the left of  the German battery. At 300 metres  distance he found shelter behind a  wall. He took aim at the battery in  enfilade, and his Mauser brought  down in quick succession "the chief  officer, the under officers, and the  artillerymen.  This time real confusion took place  at the German battery, which was  nearly silenced. The Germans, thinking that a whole platoon was now  attacking them, directed their last  piece of artillery on the wall, and  with a terrific carsh - the wall came  down, burying the brave Corporal  Lupin. The boy's bravery had weakened "the German poistion, and it did  not take us long to scatter them aud  put another victory on our list.  How Reservist Dobson saved a  comrade and earned the Victoria  Cross is told in the following"letters:  Writing to his wife, Dobson says:  "You will know by the time you  receive this letter that I have been  recommended ofr the Victoria Cross,  an honor I never thought would come  my way. I only took my chance and  did my duty to save my comrades.  It was really notnmg."  The -second, letter is from Lady  Mildred Follett, whose husband commands Dobson's company. It is aa-  dressed to Mrs. Dobson:  "You will be glad to know that  your husband is very well and has  behaved with very great gallantry.  Captain Follett says: 'A thick ^fog  came down, so I 'sent three men out  100 yards to our front to warn them  .of an attack by the enemy. After  they had been .-there an hour the fog  suddenly lifted, and they were fired  on at close range. One man -was  killed, one badly wounded, and one  crawled back! I didn't-know how to  get the wounded man back, so 1  called for a vplunteer and Reservist  Dobson at once responded and went  out to fetch him. He was heavily  fired at, but not hit."  Hia Ambition  "The first time I observed my nephew, Walden Jay Piddle, practicing  what afterward became his justly celebrated specialty," grimly stated Ua-  cle Timrod Tarpy, "was when he ship,  ped a hard earned dollar away off  somewhere to an' advertiser, who promised to send him full directions for  'making his own eye water, and received the advice, 'Poke your finger in it.'  A later caper of. his was to send another dollar for an infallible rule for  telling mushrooms frorn^ toadstools,  which produced the mirth provoking  reply, 'Eat 'em and see.' At one time  he got up a flirtation through a matrimonial paper, and it took the combined  efforts of his relatives to pull him  loose from the consequences.  "Upon another occasion- It cost him  five dollars "to learn that he could unfailingly win at cards by letting them  alone. At present ho is advocating  that two can live as cheaply as one,  and at tho same time sidling up to a  widow with five children. It seems to  me that Walden Jay works harder to  win his diploma from the school of experience- than any other ninny with  whom f was ever acquainted."���������Tom  P. Morgan.

The petitioners, American citizens, ,ask the Washington   gov9rnment   to cede  to Canada,   without compensation, the Alaska panhandle,.  Whether-or not the   matter  will be seriously considered  the near future will disclose.  It is our opinion that  it  will  end by being regarded as a  joke.    The-world, is scarcely  yet ripe for so much magnanimity.    Yet, in ages to  come,  there  is  no  reasou to. doubt  that such    transactions' will  become; common.    Where the  people are  entirely free, and  self-governing, it matter little  to them to what flag they are.  transferred, as long as the in  stitutiohs under that flag are  equally free.    If this  condition has been reached in Canada and the  United  States,  there is no  reason  why the  people   of   the   Alaska panhandle, if they are convinced  that they  can   goveru themselves "''more   advantageously  from   Victoria     than     from  Washington,   should   not  be  allowed to do so.  orld.

Having    neither   Bible   nor  prayer book, Lee pulled   out a pack  of cards and spread them before him,  first looking at one and .them   at another as the service proceeded.    Noticing this, the sergeant of the company   said:    "Richard, put up'.the  HI cards;   this   is no place for them."  "Never  mind that,"  eaid   Rich<ird,  as he proceeded to study the cards.  When   the-service   was over the  constable   took   Richard  a prisoner  and .brought him before  the. magistrate. ������������������    '  - :���������'...        i<  "Weil,"said the magistrate,"what  have you brought this- soldier here  for?';' '  "For playing cards in- church."  "Well, soldier, what have you   to  say for yourself?"  "Much,-sir, Ihope."  "Very good; if not I will   punish  you severely." .     t ~.  . "I.have been," said the soldier,  "on the march about six week; I  have nothing but a pack" of cards,  and hope to satisfy your honor of  the purity of my intentions."  ��������� Tben, spreading the cards before  the bailie, he began with the ace,  and. proceeded:  : "When I see the ace it reminds  me there is but one God.-  "When I see the deuce it reminds  me of Father &nd Son.  "When I see the three it reminds  me of Father, Son and Holy Ghost.  _ "When X see the four It reminds  me of the four evangelists that  preached���������Matthew, Mark, Luke  and John.  "When I see the five" it reminds  me of the wise virgins that trimmed  thejr lamps. There were ten, but  five were wise and five were" foolish,  and were shut out.  "When I see the six it reminds  me that in six days the Eotd make'  heaven aud earth.  "When I see the seven it reminds  me that on the seventh day God  rested from the great work vvnich he  had made, and hallowed it.  "When I see the eight it reminds  me of the eight righteous persons  who were saved when God destroyed  the world, viz., Noah and his wife,  his three sons and their wives.  "When I see the nine it reminds  me. of the ten lepers who were  cleansed by our Savior. There were,  nine of the ten who never returned  thanks.  "When I see the ten it 'reminds  me of the ten commandments which  God handed down to Moses on the  tablets of stone.  "When I see the king it reminds  me of the great King of Heaven,  who is our God Almight.  "When I see the queen it reminds  me of the Queen of Sheba, who visited Solomon. She brought fifty  boys and fifty girls all dressed in  boys' apparel for King Solomon to  tell which were boys and which  were girle. The king sent for water  for them to wash The girls washed  to the elbows and the boys to tbe  wrists', so King Solomon told by  that."  "Well," said the bailie, "you have  described every card in the pack except one."  "What is that?"  "The knave," said the bailie.  ''I will give your honor a description of that, too, if you will  not  be  angry."  ' "I will not." said the bailie, "if  you do not term me to be the  knave."  "Tbe greatest knave  I   know   is  the constable who brought me here."  "I do not know," said tbe bailie,  "if be  is  the greatest knave, but I  know he is tho greatest fool."  "When I count how many  spots'  there are in a pack of cards," con-If  tinued Lee, "I find , 365, as many  days as there are in a year. When I  count the number of cards in a pack  I find 52,.the number of weeks in a  year, I find there are twelve pictures in a pack, representing the  number of months in a year; and on  counting the tricks I find 13, the  number of weeks in a>, quarter.

Turkey and England   ;'  The Hopelessly Insincere Character of  the  Ottoman People  England  has  dealt with  the  Turk  long enough to bo aware of the hopelessly Insincere character of Ottoman  diplomacy. -Pressed hard enough, the  Sublime Porte  will  promise ' almost  anything, b'ut.never willingly redeems  a  promise.    The  new   White  Paper,  just published by the British foreign  office, shows pla.iMy enough that from  tho beginning of the   war   Turkey-tle-  liberately tried to deceive England as  to her intentions.. It is difficult to believe that so experienced a diplomat as  Sir Edward Grey did not realize this.  All the world knew that,.German influence was well nigh supreme at Constantinople,    and    that the    Turkish  forces on land and sea would be hurled  upon the Allies whenever Germany decided that the-farce of Turkish neutrality was played > out.   Sir Edward's  purpose, probably, was to delay this  event as long as possible, and meanwhile to put the onus of the act where  it properly belongs.    Thus he accepted with'a straight face excuses that  were   -palpably    false.���������Philadelphia  Public Ledger.

Birds always desert scenes of  heavy gunfire; and, what is more, they  often do not return for many years.

Meanwhile South-Africa  has suffered from a vexatious plague  of ground insects���������"tecks" as they  call them over there.

Meredith and Sir Ferderlok  Williams-Taylor Speak of K3 Ef������   '  feet Upon the Country  With a world war is pr'ogross, and  unprecedented conditions existiug, the  amiual meeting of the Bank Of Montreal this week attracted more than the  usual attention for it gave an opportunity for' the shareholders of tho  bankand Canadians in general to hear  the views of two of Canada's moat  celebrated bankers���������Mr. H. -V, Meredith and Sir Frederick Williams-Taylor.  Both gentlemen reviewed the situation in very able fashion and it is  interesting to note that both expressed the view that Canada was weathering the storm with a cortaln degree  of success.  After pointing out the fact that the  bank had greatly strengthened its position during the year, Mr. H. V. Meredith, the president, said:  "The outbreak of hostilities brought  about the collapse of the whole financial fabric, the closing of the'bourses  and a world-wide financial cataclysm.  For a time, at least, a .condition of  well nigh . general insolvency was  .threatened.  "Britain's command of the seas was  undoubtedly, the chief factor in bringing a recovery of confidence, but great  credit is due to the government and  their able financial advisers for their  bold and statesmanlike views of the  situation and their prompt action in  meeting the crisis, as well as to the  Bank of England for the courage and  activity with which the plans of the  government were carried out."'-  Situation in Canada  After giving an exceedingly instructive review of the world position, Mr.  Meredith said of Can-.da that'agricul-  ture was prosperous, "but a general  suspension of new undertakings is apparent. At the same time he thought  that as regards unemployment our position will compare favorably withthat  of other countries.  Mr. Meredith pointed out that fortunately it has not been necessary for  Canada to resort to a moratorium and  closed liis remarks in the following  i.opei'ul vein: .  "War and other-adverse conditions  are "bound to retard our progress. A  period of rcsj;_and recuperation may  be expect. d,"but the future depends  to a great extent upon the- spirit with  which the people meet the changed  conditions.        (  "Economy and prudence in the matter of expenditure^ and an earnest effort to increase production of exportable articles, will in time usher in an  era of active trade and renewed pros-  peri tj-."  Stands Strain Well  Sir Fredcrick���������Williams-Taylor, after pointing out that the Bank of  Montreal was 97 years old, spoke of  the great stability of the institution  and later reviewed Canadian conditions as a wh-jie and by each province. ,  Speaking of the war's effects he  said in part:  "The outstanding result nas been  the instantaneous stoppage of the supply of British capital to which we had  become so accustomed that sight was  too frequently lost of its importance  as a factor, in the development of the  Dominion.  "Money from'this source flowed'to  u's in such increasing volume that  during a considerable ante bellum  period it amounted in round figures to  at least $25,000,000 per month. Canadian public borrowings from the London  money market for the seven months  ending 31st July were $17,000,000.  Since the outbreak of the Avar tlie inflow of such capital Las ceased."  Our Own Resources  How to face the loss of this money  and continue to expand were serious  problems. Sir Frederick said we were  now getting a little money from the  States, and added:  "It Is obvious to everyone that we  are cast upon our own resources, that  we are on trial, and that our future  development will depend in no small  measure upon the conditions in which  we emerge from this trying ordeal.  "The longer the duration of the war,  the more will the colonial props of  the empire, including Canada, suffer,  but good will come  out of evil,  for  our energies will be turned to the development of our great natural wealth  particularly our vast agricultural resources and we can then look forward  with confidence to eventually emerging from present conditions a wiser  people with our affairs on a healthier,  more normal and sounder basis."  Big Gain in Assets  The Bank of Montreal, itself, came  through  the  trying year with  flying  colors  and its  total assets aer now  $250,400,000  compared with $244,700,-  000 a year ago.   An interesting feature  of tho statement is the fact that deposits  are  considerably higher  than  they were last year.   Deposits bearing  interest are now $154,600,000, an  Increase of $10,000,000, while non-interest hearing  deposits  are  $42,600,000,  a loss of $3,000,000.   This shows a net  gain of $7,000,000.  The bank's profits for the year  were $2,496,000, compared with $2,-  648,000 a year ago. While this is a  small falling off it is insignificant compared with the fine results achieved in  fortiflyihg the bank's position.  A Big Surplus  It is noticed that the bank loaned  the Dominion government $5,000,000  during the year and also loaned over  $9,000,000 to cities, towns and school  districts to help them over a period  that made the raising of money  through debenture issues exceedingly  difficult.

The Copenhagen   .correspondent, jf  .the London Times sends an interview  with  a" distinguished    banker  -of  a  .neutral country, whose long standing  business relations with Germany required' him to spend seven weeks in  that country recently. ,  "It would be* a' grave fallacy," the  banker says; "to judge Gorman affairs  by'the German-newspapers of-today.  They must not only suppress what the  .government'does not want printed, but"  ���������are required to publish that, and^that  only \ ���������yyhlch .the government lays before them. Everything, for instance,  .tending to suggest that thj rigors of  war' are slowly but" surely undermining the national economic fabric is  strictly contraband."  The banker's   contact   with German  bankers and business, men convinced  'him that they realize new that "Ger-  I'many has been plunged into a tragic  and-pathetic adventure."  "Even  the  great    industrialists  of  Rhineland-Westph'aTia,   though,   many  . of their works are occupied in the  production of war materials " to a  ..wholly . unprecedented extent,'-'- he  says, "are depressed and melancholy  over the .awful struggle into'wliich  Germany has been precipitated. They  are. men who cannot "be* deluded by  official optimism and. bluster.    They-  . are men accustomed to deal .with  facts.  "The general staff told the great  captains of "Industry, who in Germany  are a hardly less important factor in  the conduct of a war than the staff  itself, that the plan of campaign, reduced to essentials, was this. We shall'  smash France within three weeks,  then wheel about and deliver Russia  a knockout blow before she has had  time to complete her mobilization. Belgium will offer only the resistance of  sullenness. England will not come In  at all. The German government had  the positive assurance of leading  Englishmen to that effect.   ---'  -" "Well, this hammer and tongs programme has not been successful. Cogs  have slipped at numerous vital points.  Belgium's resistance, (to begin with,  was more than-sullen.', England did  com'e"in. Paris was not occupi-ed by  Aug. 25, and Russia, far from being  ���������knocked out,' has not even reeled. Not  -a single one of-the general staff's objectives has "been ��������� attained. Checkmated in all directions, Germany has  . little but an enormous death roll to  counterbalance the terrific effort the  first few months of war have cost her.  "These are the immutable things  which thinking business Germans see  and know. They realize that, thanks  to a very far seeing economic and financial organization,    th-Ir   trade and 3  commerce' have thus far, barring the  annihilation of the German merchant  marine, been dislocated perhaps to no  greater extent than the trade and  commerce of their enemies. They look  across the Atlantic and see that even  America, as could not be.,otherwise'in  a real world war, feels the blight of  Europe and Asia's colossal iblood letting. But what German industrial  leaders also realize is that prolongation of the.war into months and years  must spell eventual ruin.  ��������� '"I could see-no signs that Germany,  as yet, has actually felt the effect of  .her great adventure. But the cumulative effect of the conditions which  /war brings, especially now that intelligent Germans know it is to be a  prolonged struggle, is measured at its  full value. It is becoming increasingly plain to them that they cannot win.  "A military nation trained from the  cradle up to believe in the might of  numbers must,    viewed   merely from  "that standpoint, now see that the odds  are overwhelmingly against them.  "MenNlike Ballin and Heineken,  whose liners have been swept from  the seas as if by some all devastating  hurricane; people 1 Ice the textile mag  nates of Westphalia and Saxony,  whose looms are silent when no more  American cotton can be-imported;  ironmasters lilce Krupp, Thyssen and  Stfnnes; .electrical magnates - like  Ratheriauand the Siemens-Schuckerts,  who know what uninterrupted -:up-  plies of staple raw stuffs from abroad,  such as copp-T and petroleum, mean;  bankers like Von Gwinner and Furs-  tenberg, who know the havoc which  the financing of war and stoppage of  exports work to German credits at  home and abroad, these men are under no delusions as to what the war  is doing and will do, the more it develops into a protracted, victoryless  affair or mere give and take on three  or four vast firing miles.  . . "They are immensely patriotic, all  of them. They cannot truthfully be  described as downhearted or hopeless.  They are not grumbling. But neither  can' they be said to be even remotely-'  cheerful over the ultimate prospect.  The war has not yet sapped the prosperity of the zenith of which business  Germany found itself three and" a half  months ago. But war has terribly  jeopardized  prosperity.  "A man cannot tarry long in Germany these days without having it  borne in i:pon him with that ferocious  fury all classes of the population hate  England. England is blamsd for the  collapse of the genearl staff's grand  plan of campaign. England is depicted as 'the one and only foe.' The  'great settlement' is to come-with her.''  Unfortunately for  the Crown Prince  Imperialistic    Thought    of    Germany  Was For a War of Aggression -  Germany's justification in the war,  Germany's right to say that the war  was forced upon her, does not rest,  in. the crown prince's-mind, upon any  details of the. events of four months  ago. What he talks of is the iron  ring; "we foresaw, and as f.ir as possible forestalled, the attempt to crush  us within this ring." It happens that,  in the Jul., number of the'leading Austrian magazine, the ���������Oesterreichis.che  Rundschau, the principal article was  upon the crown prince as the exponent of German imperialism. Here we  find his well known" glorification of  war, his proud- consciousness of the  martial tradition bf his race, his conviction that only by the maintenance  of that tradition "can Germany remain  a great and noble nation. But not a  word about any clanger that the German people may be crushed, or their  institutions destroyed. Not defense  against a foe threatening her life, but  quite a different motif runs through all  his exaltation of preparedness for war  and of joy in battle. "The German  empire," he said in a famous outgiving a few years ago, "has more than  any other of the peoples of our old  earth, the sacred duty to maintain her  army and her navy always at the  highest point of readiness to strike.  Only so, relying on our good sword,  can we obtain the place in the sun  which is our due, but is not voluntarily conceded to us." Expansion,  not self preservation, was then the  sufficient ground for Germany's readiness to fight; and nothing could be  plainer from the whole tenor of tljye  crown prince's- thought, as shown in  the Rundschau's approving article,  than that he and Lis fellow imperialists looked upon war as not only the  natural, but the desirable means of  giving expression to the nation's aspirations.���������New York Evening Post.

Have Been Drawn From Many Parts  of the Vast Russian Empire  The Cossacks of the Russian army  have as a force always impressed  themselves on1 the imagination of the  world. Their true name is Kazak, a  word which may be-freely translated  "freebooter," or adventurer. The original Cossacks, says "E.T," in the  Sphere', were the floating population,  chiefly freebooters, which lay between  the Osmanli empire on the one hand  and Russia and Poland-^n the other.  Mostly nominal Greek Christians, they  subsisted partly by agriculture, but  mainly my raids upon the Tartars and  Turks. Naturally they were at times  as dangerous to friend as to foe. In  the middle of the seventeenth century  the Cossacks of the Dnieper aud Little  Russia, under the Ataman (headman)  Bogdan Klimelnitzki, transferred their  allegiance from Poland to Russia on  account of oppression by the former���������  an event which was the beginning of  the end for Poland. The Cossacks of  the Don were already attached to Russia, and it was largely owing to their  restless activity that Russia occupied  vast and trackless Siberia at r.n early  epoch. The legendary hero of the  conquest of Siberia (Yertnak Timo-  felevich)* was a Cossack chief. As Russia advanced her borders she created  further Cossack forces out of the people whom she absorbed. Their essential characteristics- was that that they  are (or were) a militia of yeomen riding their own horses and equipped at  their own expense. It is possible that  some so-called Cossack regiments are  now practically regulars. Owing to the  wide extent of the empire they are  1.0'w of many races. The:-j are Don  Cossacks, Cossacks of the Ural, of the  Caucasus, of Sibeiia, etc. Mi-.ny of  the Asiatic regiments are pure Mongols, and Mongol lineaments are plainly to be discerned in the features of  many even of the ordinary Cossack  troopers. The Don and Dnieper Cossacks are mostly Slavs.  Peals of laughter came from the  president's room as the secratary stepped out.

Supplies are Running Short  Germans Are Adjuged to be Careful  of Food  Although unceasing assurances are  sent to the outside world that- Germany's food supply is not and cannot  be imperilled by the war, the Prussian-ministry of commerce and trade  has prepared a remarkable public  proclamation adjuring the nation to  practice Spartan economy in the preparation "and use of edibles.  Governors of provinces, have been  directed to display the proclamation  in the most conspicuous manner possible, including posting it on billboards, in railway stations, waiting  rooms, the various law courts,, state  insurance offices, soup kitchens,  schools, workmen's quarters in factories and mills, and intelligence offices, in short, everywhere where there  is large traffic of persons.  The proclamation, which has the  caption "Germany is Standing Against  a World of Enemies, Who Would Destroy Her," reads:  "They will not succeed in defeating  our glorious troops, but they wish to  starve us out, like .. besieged fortress.  They will r.lso fail in that, because we  have enough breadstuffs in the country to nourish our population until the  next harvest; but nothing must be  wasted.

Bristol, chief  of the aeronautical bureau of the  navy department to the House naval  committee. <,  Captain Bristc'.'s resolutions are  contained in a supplemental statement  laid before the committee.. Other  testimony of Captain 3ristol already  has been made public.  It would require an appropriation  of $2,200,000 to bring tne aeronautical  branch of the navy up to a proper  standard of efficiency, Captain Bristol  told the  i--mmitt. ���������.  "The air navy of the U.S.," he said,  "must consist of aeroplanes, semirigid airships���������the destroyer, cruiser  and battelship of the air respectively.  The aeroplane will.be used for scouting to discover the.,enemy's fleet, especially submarines and mines and to  -attack "the dirigibles-and aeroplanes  of>the enemy, it is the' torpedo boat  cf'the air.agaihst-the airship cruisers  and battleships. . Having discovered  the submarines and mines, it directs  the air cruisers to attack these craft  and. to countermine and at the same  time protects' the cruisers from the  enemy's aircraft. The air cruisers will  as. well, lay mines. The air battleships  will meet the air craft of the enemy  in battle,'possibly will be used to drop  aerial torpedoes on the surface ships  of the. enemy and be utilized overland  forv -reconnaissance and dropping  bombs.   - .  "The uses to-which air craft can be  put in war will be better known after  the European war. It seems that the  air navy will be just as essential a  part of the country's fighting forces  as the battleships and submarines:  The front of our fleet in action has  become a vertical plane with��������� submarines and mines beneath the" surface, batt.'eships and cruisers on the  surface, sir craft in the air. To be  successful against ��������� any enemy the  country must have command of the  air the same as command of the sea.  "Any nation that, has suitable- air  craft could detect .submarines," he  added. "The aeroplane can see submarines and mines very plainly and  guide tbe dirigible to them which can  descend close to the water and drop  high explosives to counter mine the  mines or destroy the submarines. We  can pick up the mines at the usual  depth, even follow ;he anchor line of  the mine down to a considerable depth  below the mine. The submarine, if  it comes to the surface, would be attacked by surface craft. The submarine could remain deep only a limited time, but must come up and .show  the periscope to get its bearings. A  bomb dropped upon it should not be  arranged to explode until"beneath the  water. The periscope is often discov-  ���������.-i-jrl by the wash, it makes. One  could see a submarine fifty to a hundred feet in clear weather."  Did she marry well?

Women and children have suffered,  and are suffering through this war  more . than they have suffered before in our time. Too much cannot be done for them. It . will be  difficult, or impossible, to do enough.  "Immediately after tlie' fall of  Antwerp, 1 -was at Folkestone. It  was like a foreign town.- The streets  were throng'ed "with wandering fugi  tlves���������whole families, old women  with thin shawls wrapped around  them, little .girls with white faces,  and wide eyes that had seen things  no children should see, tiny things  just able'to toddle, babies of a few  months old, and some just born.  Many of these people had lived at  Liege. From therj they had tied'to  Brussels, from Brussels to Antwerp,  and finally from Antwerp toJSngland.  "One woman with whomrl talked  had a baby with her, four months  old, who''had made this tragic pilgrimage pursued by the roar' of German guns. The father? The weman  did not know where the father was.  The house that had been home?  She thought it was burned down.  Now mother and baby were-in England, .and mother ...was just'wondering what would happen to them.  She made no complaint. After telling me her story, she simply said,  'I have come here.

When -I met this lady her husband was lighting at Namur. Soon  afterwards he was badly wounded.  They conveyed him'to aNhospital j.t  Antwerp, and his wife 'hurried there  to see him. She arrived to find him  dying, aud Antwerp being bombarded  by the German army. Hi died just  as' the city fell. The young "widow  fied, succeeded in reaching England,  and is now lodging in Faversham, a  small co-.ntry town near-Canterbury,  waiting for what:  "An old peasant woman, whom I  met in a camp of seventy refugees,  among the hop gardens of Kent,  said 10 me, 'but my dear Monsieur,  .Belgium no longcv exists.' She was  from Namur, wiieio she had passed  her whole life. Her little home had  been razed to the ground. 'When I  left it for the last time, monsieur, I  walked among the dead bodies,' she  said, staring at me with her light  blue eyes which seemed always  asking some question.  "In a money changer's shop at  Folkestone,- I encountered a very old  ladjr, dressed in black, with ' snow-  white hair. As ,:he spoke scarcely  any' English,- I helped ner to do her  business, the' changing of a tiny ���������  sum of money which was all she had  been able to brin������ with her when  she fied before the advancing hosts.' '  She had cne possession with her iu  Folkestone. She told me* that she  had been spending , the evening of  her days in her home 0:1 the outskirts of Antwerp 'with my beautiful pictures. Ah, monsieur, I had  ���������i&nie very beautiful pictures. Whea  the Germans were coming, I cut the  best' Ruebens," a leal Rubens, monsieur, out of its frame, and fled with,  it. I have it liert- in a little room  they have given me' in Folkestone.'  This old lady is rich in comparison,  with many of the fugitives.  "There a1'6 thousands who have  nothing except the clothes they are  wearing. Irr Folkestone I saw many  almost starving people being fed  with milk and bread a^ the reception offices where several English  women and men have been doing  their best for them, where Madame  Gody herself, a Belgian refugee,^ has  for many weeks been working all  day and often during the night, try-'  ing to find temporary homes for  them, and to alleviate their sufferings.  "English friends of mine have  just returned from Paris. They say  Americans there, headed by their  splendid ambassador, 'an angel if  ever there was one,' as an English  woman, a hospital worker, described  him to me���������Americans there are  doing a work of mercy which can,-  not be overestimated."  The  Problem   of   Feeding  Germany Doec Not Produce Sufficient  Food  For Her Population  Even  in  Times of Peace  A .correspondent ( wants to know  what Germany will do for food if she  cannot get nitrates from Chili. The  question might besl be referred 10 the  German newspapers. But as Chilian  nitrates are used in the manufacture  of gunpowder, it is to be presumed  that people preparing for war will provide themselves with all necessary  warlike stores. The problem does,  however, admit of some ugly possibilities.  Germany has to feed a population  approximately 65 per cent, that of the  United States. Comparing her area  with Texas, two states equal to New  York and Maryland could be carved  out of Texas and the state would still  be as large as the German empire. It  is by no means a la.id flowing with  milk and honey. Yet, from the very  necessity of the case, Germany, is now  producing yields far greater than ou:*s,  and surpassed only by Denmark and  England.  This is accomplished by intensive  farming and liberal fertilization. Of  the three elements of plant food which  must be returned to tlie eartn year by  year, Germany produces one, and that  is potash. Of tho other two she imports 365,000 tons of phosphate from  the United States every, year, -and  about ?26,000,000 worth of nitrates  from Chili. There is an unlimited supply of the latter in the atmosphere,  and where power is cheap it is feasible  to "hx" or combine it for agricultural  use.  But with all their efforts it has not  been possible for such a limited area  to feed the population. Statistics  issued by the department of agriculture are to the effect that Germany  now produces 82 per cent, of her gra;n  requirements; about 92 per cent, of  meat and dairy roducts; 67 of poultry; 48 of fruits, and nearly all of her  vegetables. This i~, under i.eace conditions.  Women, children, and old men, no  matter how willing, canno'. make up  the lack of of able bodied me.i in the  fields. War must have an effect upon  the supply of live stock also, for soldiers in the field cannot be fed on  wind. Blockading nitrates and com-  merical fertilizers must have an Important effect upon the production of  food, which cannot be made up by  their utilization of sewage vaste.  Perhaps the general staff has provided for this. Certainly, If the food  supply is cut off, the magnificent  "fighting machine" becomes like a  Mallett-conipound engine without  fuel���������powerful but useless, especially  when it is off ."the track.  The army and the people must be  fed.    But how?���������Wall Street Journal.  First White Men to Land  Visitor���������I've seen that man standing  agxinst that store for the past hour.

Belcher Islands, Liti.:e Known, Visited  by Explorers  The Belcher Islands, a group some  eighty miles off the southeast coast of  Hudson Bay, long charted but little  known, were visited in September last  by an exploring party on the Newfoundland schooner Laddie. Although  the islands were sighted by Captain  Cook 150 years ago, and by other explorers since, it is declared that the  members of tne Laddie expedition  were the first.white men to land there.  The islands, which-lie in latitude 66  north, were found to be in a somewhat  different position and in greater numbers than marked on the latest charts.  In its fifteen daysi exploration, of the  group the party found it to be barren,  but abounding in wild life, including  foxes,  Arctic  hares  and geese.  Tho Laddie left St. John on July  15 last with supplies for Messrs. Fillers and Leduc, who went north.in  1913 on an expedition for the Canadian Northern Railway. One of their  chief objects was to endeavor to locate coal.beds in "some parts of the  Hudson Bay region which could bo  utilized*in connection with the railway now being projected to run from  Lepas, Manitoba, to Port Nelson, on  the south coast of the bay.  The Laddie, running north along  the Labrador coast, and working her  way through Hudson Strait, found  the explorers on August 19 at Mad-  juak Bay, on the south coast of the  Great Basin Island. The ice in the  .two Newfoundlanders. The ice in the  bay had broken up only two days  previously.  The four men boarded the Laddie,  which proceeded to Cape Dorset, on  the south coast of Fox Land, then  crossed Hudson Strait to Eric harbor,  made her way down the bay past the  Ottawa Islands to the Blencher Islands.  The Laddie then went south to  Moose Factory, a Hudson Bay Company post on James Bay, to tie up  for the - 'inter. Two men stayed  with the schooner, and the rest of the  crew returned on a Hudson Bay  steamer.  Germans Shy on Shells  According to tho Paris Temps, a  German document has been found in a  village in the department of Aisne recommending that economy be used in  tlie use of projectiles for the artillery.

Because of this need of
the Empire for mere food, and
the call, to Canada in that
need, the Canadian Department of Agriculture . has ~ "
arranged for a series of Conferences
throughout the Dominion with the object
of giving suggestions as to the best ways of
increasing   production   of   the particular
products needed at this time.  At these conferences agricultural specialists, who have
studied agricultural conditions and production throughout the world, and the best
means of increasing agricultural production in Canada,
will give valuable information
and suggestions to the farmers; live-stock men, dairymen,
poultrymen,    vegetable
growers, and other producers
___________    of this country.   The Canadian Department of Agriculture
urges you to attend as many of these Con-
. ferences as possible, also to watch for other
information on the sub ject that will be given
in other announcements in this newspaper.
